I am looking for a hand held device that does real-time "talker independent" speech recognition (speech to text). Here are the characteristics that
(1) external mic (lapel mic) with short wire.
(2) continuous recognition (can run for several hours without touching device)
(3) environment - talking to people face to face where a glance at the
device shows what they are saying.
Neither the iPhone nor Droid (Google) setups satisfy these needs. Does anyone know of a system that does? Or is anyone competent enough to reprogram the Droid so that it does satisfy these needs?
(I am a long time researcher in speech recognition but I am old(!) and really no longer want to get into the nitty gritty of Java or Objective-C programming).
